Building up/scaffolding writing. Modelling Creative writing Key Stage 2 Year 3 Year 4 grammar.

Hi, This resource is great for whole lessons. You can model writing a sustained piece and structure how to add depth and creativity to a paragraph/short/long piece of writing. I've played around with how I use this presentation, here are some suggestions, and if you find better ways then please share your good practice. 1. Print slides and allow children to use as prompts for writing about a stimulus. 2. Show children stimulus and then do some talk for writing, than ask them to write sentence/paragraph 1 and then share with class. Repeat process for all 6 sentence types. 3. Print the slides and cut the strips up. Allow children to mix and match to create different structures. I really hope that this resource is useful. Many thanks

The Christmasaurus VACE (verb, adjective, adverb, clause) sheet

The Christmasaurus VACE (verb, adjective, adverb, clause) sheet

This lesson is brilliant for helping children improve a very basic sentence, build vocabulary and work on sentnce structure. The Christmasaurus walked in the snow. Add a VERB, ADJECTIVES and ADVERBS, a subordinate CLAUSE and EXTEND even further. The children are required, in different stages to up-level and improve the sentence so that by the end of the two lessons, they will have a really detailed and brilliant sentence. This activity took me two lessons because we really focussed on building the children's vocabulary and I modelled each stage with them -> see attached WAGOLL and picture of working wall.
